Sugar Smart resources - Early Years

There are a variety of posters that Early Years settings can download to use in their Sugar Smart displays. Click on the links below to access them.

Sugar Smart leaflet contains lots of interesting facts about added sugar

Three Things Poster is a general poster encouraging everyone to do three things today to reduce their added sugar consumption - read the labels, swap a sweet snack, think before you drink.

Drinks poster compares the number of teaspoons of sugar in a range of popular drinks with water (0 teaspoons!)

Early Years poster shows the number of teaspoons of added sugar in a range of food and drinks commonly bought by families with young children. The poster is designed to raise awareness with parents before moving on to talk about suitable swaps to reduce the amount of added sugars consumed.

Family pledge sheet for families to write down their breakfast or packed lunch pledges. Use these sheets in your display!

To help families with ideas, use the breakfast swaps information and the packed lunch swaps information in your display.

Primary schools poster shows the number of teaspoons of added sugar in a range of common food and drinks used in packed lunches and at home.

Secondary schools poster is the same but uses examples that older children and young people are likely to consume.

When a setting registers to become Sugar Smart, they will receive some hard copies of the relevant poster, some postcards and window stickers.

They will also be invited to borrow further resources to enhance their displays. These include a pull-up banner with the 'three things' message, bunting and a large PVC banner that can be used outside. Photos of these resources can be found here.
